"It's just like the story of the grasshopper and the octopus. All year long the grasshopper kept burying acorns for winter while the octopus mooched off his girlfriend and watched TV.

Then the winter came, and the grasshopper died, and the octopus ate all his acorns and also he got a racecar. Is any of this getting through to you?"

November Round up

Journal Entry: Tue Nov 11, 2014, 1:34 PM

Hello, I hope you are all doing well :) (Smile). I'm happy to announce I got a new job in geoscience from the training course I attended in early October! Love There was always the worry I'd overspecialised as I must admit things in my sector are hard to come by for graduates. Though this was always a paradox because every lecturer and company website always nattered on about there being a skills gap in the energy industry as all the old buggers finally retire and who'd forgot to hire new blood on a continual basis.

Anyway I've got the job, and in exactly the area I'm interested in (sedimentology) so I will begin working there in January. This means I'm moving out to live in North Wales so I've got plenty to think about in the coming months. I've bought a car, so soon I shall have a black Volkswagen Polo who shall be known as 'Edgar Allan Polo'. Next up is finding somewhere to rent, which is a bit trickier and more prone to busting my budget.

In the meantime I'm pretty free and bored. I'm looking to see whether Dragon Age Inquisition will be any good, as in what real people think as opposed to major reviewers. Sorry BioWare but you can't run on good faith at the moment. I bought Valkyria Chronicles on Steam: it looks like anime and WW2 had a baby but I hear it's quite well regarded, plus I enjoy the strategy/rpg genre. Yet to play it as it's 16GB and my home connection sucks lately (note to self: find somewhere with good broadband for next year).

I figure I might be able to fit in one major model project before I leave. If you're interested I just released a Ocarina of Time 3D Sheik using newly ripped 3DS content:…

But for something bigger I'm thinking of either a TF2 Soldier, or a BioShock Infinite Boy of Silence. My TF2 Pyro was reasonably simple to edit and a joy to build apart from the flamethrower, so perhaps a Soldier could be viable too. Alternatively the Boy of Silence will have lovely HD textures and no troublesome face to edit, though it will start at a very high polycount intially. I have both models ready for posing but have yet to make the decision.

About Me:
Postgraduate petroleum geology student and artistic dabbler from the north west of England.

I'm fascinated with historical military designs, particularly from about 1800-1920 and all the related themes that go with them. The Napoleonic and colonial eras up until WWI and the Interwar period are my favourite areas of inspiration. Aww who am I kidding, WW2 is also very interesting to read up on as well.

Besides that I design and build papercraft models using 3D data from games. I've worked on a whole bunch over the years from games on the N64, GC/Wii and PC. The templates are freely distributed in my gallery or over on my old blog. If you ever build any I always thrilled to see any pictures you might have!

Find me on Steam and (rarely) Origin, as XenonRay.
